if you can't find it at ifixit.com then I know welovemacs.com sells original Mac OS install discs for many different models including iBook G4, though not necessarily cheap. I don't know of a similar vendor in Canada.

take a look http://welovemacs.com/osx1031037.html

specifically I see here's 10.3.2 for iBook G3/G4 install discs: http://welovemacs.com/6914946a.html

as mentioned above, you can run up to OS 10.4.11 on the iBook G4, so I think you're better off just installing this later version if you already have it

I remember ifixit used to sell Mac OS 10.3 discs for this model but it seems they've gone. Even so, iBook G4 can run 10.4.11. If you have another mac running 10.4.11 or earlier you can take an image from that one with Disk Utility.
